Harry Reid Has Nothing to Lose, Calls GOP Candidates ‘All Losers’

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, who will not run for re-election and plans on resigning at the end of his term, clearly has no fucks left to give.

In an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood, Reid, still wearing his Deal With It sunglasses as a result of his eye injury, dismissed the GOP presidential candidates as “losers” and his GOP counterpart, Sen. Mitch McConnell, as a “lump of coal.” Because he comes from a coal state. (“I don’t mean to be mean spirited,” Reid joked.)

Not on the Reid shit-list: current Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke (“he’s my man”), Speaker John Boehner (who he personally likes but profoundly disagrees with in public), and Hillary Clinton (though he spoke more about how he loved Bill Clinton, especially when he ends their conversations with “Harry, I love you”).

He was also baffled by conspiracy theories floated by Rush Limbaugh that his eye injury was the result of a mob attack and not, as he’s claimed, by an exercise band snapping: “Why on earth would I come up with a story that I got hurt in my own bathroom with my wife standing there?”

In short, Harry Reid is going full honey badger and will not look back.
